Park, East Ridge advance in one-act theater competition

Park High School's performance of "Antigone" on Wednesday was ranked first by all three judges in the Section 3AA One-Act Play contest, according to Steve Estenson who directs the Park show with Denise Atkinson.

East Ridge High School placed second.

The two teams are scheduled to compete with Bloomington-Kennedy and Eagan high schools on Wednesday, Jan. 30, at Park, with the highest-ranked play going on to state competition.

There were the usual jitters that come with a first performance before an audience, Estenson said. There was also the added pressure of being judged in a contest, but the Park cast came through it, he said.
